A little cut, color, and a twist out!

I've been saying for awhile that I need a change. Yesterday, I finally did it. I got layers cut in my hair (still keeping the length in the back) and some color (highlights) at the top. Now - before anyone asks, I am sad to say that I don't remember the name of the color I have :( I think it was by Soft Sheen Carson and I had my sister put the color in (she's a licensed Cosmetologist). She also cut the layers in my hair. Later this year, I MIGHT get my hair straightened and you'll be able to better see it then. I do like that my hair lays better with the cut and it just looks and feels healthier.

To achieve the twist out look I have here, I did flat twists last night using Entwine Couture products after co-washing my hair and adding Giovanni Direct Leave-In conditioner. The Entwine Couture products I used were: ButterCreme Hydrator (to moisturize my hair) and the Creme Jelle Styler (to add some hold). Last night I put in about 10-11 flat twists using the above products and I let my hair air dry (set) overnight. This morning I carefully unraveled the twists and separated for this look.

My hair at the end of the day. A little frizz but not too bad.
